Our work is secret, but the reason for our success isn’t. It’s our people.
And we’re just like you. We’re ordinary people. But together, we’re doing extraordinary things to protect New Zealand and New Zealanders.
While we’re ordinary people, we’re not all the same. We welcome diversity, in all its forms, in fact we consider it a strength.
Join us and become part of a Community where your skills, experiences and ideas are valued and you’re encouraged to be curious, to share your ideas and of course, have fun along the way.
If you’re up for the challenge, become Beyond Ordinary with us.
In a world where our adversaries operate without rules or borders, Government Communication Security Bureau’s (GCSB) mission to secure New Zealand’s most valuable information has never been more relevant.
As an Incident Coordinator you will be part of a close-knit team that helps coordinate the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) response to cyber security incidents.
You will receive notifications of incidents, triage and evaluate them, and act as the primary point of contact throughout forensic investigations.
You will have direct contact with both domestic and international agencies, so your ability to quickly build strong relationships is key.
You will be enthusiastic and self-motivated and able to work both independently and in a team environment. Your ability to organise yourself and others, along with sound judgement and problem solving abilities will make you successful in this role.
While the role is not technically focused, an IT security background or technical qualifications would be advantageous to communicate with people with range of different technical understandings, and be easily understood.
You will be provided with a unique opportunity to broaden your existing skillset, and develop your experience through an established career path.
This is a great opportunity to get involved in a growing area, working in a challenging and dynamic role where no two days are the same.
You’ll also be part of a fun and supportive work environment.
We want our people to succeed, whatever success looks like for them. Join us and we’ll give you significant professional development opportunities aimed at taking your career in the direction you want it to go.
You won’t stand still with us as we’re committed to ongoing learning and continuous improvement.
We’re also committed to your wellbeing. We want our people to be the best they can be, both at work and at home. We offer our people comprehensive benefits, access to staff networking groups, flexible working and great work-life balance.
If you want to love coming to work each day, let us help you become Beyond Ordinary.
